By Janet Carrillo "damn it Janet, let's crochet!"
Ideas on how to use these appliques...
*These would be great to apply to any project.
*You can add them to kitchen towels,
*turn them into a keychain or fridge magnet.
*You can also make several and make a garland.
*Attach a ribbon to make them into bookmarks.
*Add them to the front of a homemade card.


approx. size: 1.75”W x 1.75”H
…but can vary based on yarn and hook size.

*Crochet hook size: 3.5mm (E)
*Worsted Weight Yarn: Yellow (4yds)
*Felt: Black & White
*Embroidery Floss or Thread: Black
*Stitch Markers
*Tapestry Needle
*Hot Glue

PATTERN NOTES - must-read...
 Numbers in ( ) at the end of each round/row indicate the total number of stitches.
 Always use stitch markers to mark your rounds.
 There's no need to sl st and/or ch when going to the next round unless stated to do so.
 Always do the 1st stitch where you slip stitch from the previous round.
 The chain, in the beginning, does NOT count as one stitch unless stated otherwise.

Invisible join - this VIDEO explains how to do this technique.
Other side of the foundation chains - this VIDEO explains how to do this technique.

BODY/HEAD with yellow
  Rnd 1: ch4, sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in next ch, 3sc in last ch, other side of the foundation chains sc in next ch, 2sc in next ch (8)
  Rnd 2: 2sc in next st, sc in next 2 sts, 2sc in next 2 sts, sc in next 2 sts, 2sc in next st, join to the next st with the invisible join (12)
F/O, secure and weave in ends.

     STRIPES…using black felt cut 2 thin stripes and glue them on one side of the body.
     STING…using black felt, cut a tiny triangle and glue it to the tip of the back.
     EYE…using black felt, make a tiny circle and glue it in place.
     WINGS…using white felt make a heart shaped wing and glue it on top of the body. You can play around with the wings and shaped them however you like.
     MOUTH…with black embroidery floss, embroider a smile underneath the eye.
     ANTENNA…using black embroidery floss or thread, weave through the stitch closest to wing to make antennas. I use glue to harden the thread so it won’t move around.
